's always fun. >> charlie: indonesias an asian success story hit hard by the 1997 financial crises and the overthrow of a dictator it has made an impressive recovery. the world's third largest dact see fastest growing after china and india. forecast gross of 7% and above in the coming years with a young population the second large else market of facebook and third largest for twitter. president obama haled indonesia, the most populous muslim nation for pluralism and religious tolerance. >> thank you so much, thank you everybody. >> charlie: joining me is gita wirjawan a former environment banker but chair of the coordinating board. pleased to have him here as we move more into this fascinating country. welcome. great to see you. >> happy to be here. >> charlie: what's happened to indonesia. >> it's a combination of a number of things but it's quite surprising the way that it turned out, you know. if you would have asked or anybody would have asked myself and many others in 9 8 or 99 whether or not indonesia was going to vulcanize or disintegrate, it would have been tough to disa
. indonesia clearly separate tsunami damage before. what is happening now? what is the information you are getting this time? >> literally, in the last few minutes, we have heard that a tsunami has been detected right up in the northeast of the country, hitting but northern ireland's -- hitting the no. islands. it is only very small, only half a meter high. if you compare that with the huge tsunami that hit different parts of indonesia in 2004, that hit with a height of 23 meters. obviously, this is definitely smaller this time. undoubtably, people are still incredibly were repaired in the last few hours, when they know a tsunami was approaching, people have been evacuating the area. they are up in higher ground. basically doing little more than waiting. here, in places like indonesia and throughout the region, all the little islands that make up micronesia, and the philippines have many islands, and indonesia have many islands, these countries are poorer. they did not have the resources japan has to prepare people for earthquakes and tsunamis. people here, there is very little they ca
country to have fallen victim to a major earthquake. but indonesia hit harder than any country before as far as a tsunami. we go to our correspondent. has the message gotten out about this tsunami warning? and if so, are people preparing for it? >> well, finally, yes. the government here has been advising people in the north of indonesia to evacuate. the tsunami is expected to hit in an hour's time and not expected to be as big as the 2004 tsunami, that was obviously the huge tsunami that absolutely devastated this country. people here are not expecting it to be that big, but on the other hand, it's incredibly worrying to people here. this is a country unlike japan where the infrastructures in japan are built to withstand earthquakes and they have very solid buildings. here in indonesia in the philippines and in some of the smaller countries also in line with the tsunami, people live in wooden houses by the beach. they don't have very much between them and a wave. so even if these waves are one meter or two meters high, it still could cause substantial damage. >> and one would imagine
about an 8.8, we have to think back to the indonesia earthquake and some lawmakers that was 9.0. this is a situation we will be talking about for quite some time. a greater earthquake has now occurred. 150 kilometers east of japan. these do not occur often. in that. these ways will continue to propagate. other countries will have more time as they continue to watch the news and hopefully evacuate folks from the coast. as far as japan, it wasn't enough time. 150 kilometers east, that was the epicenter. these things travel at 8 under kph. here is my concern with japan. not only are we going to have earthquake damage because of how close and how shallow this earthquake was that we can have subsequent tsunami waves arriving. this is not over but it could continue for quite some time over the next couple of hours. we will have to watch them closely. japan meteorological agency did not mince words. the issue immediately upon the earthquake a major tsunami warning for the coast east and the forecasted wave heights up words of three meters) that looks like it has materialized if not
of china, south korea, japan. who else should we keep an eye on? >> indonesia. 85% of the population are muslims. the largest muslim population of anywhere in the world, but more christians than the population of australia. this is a diverse country. our national slogan is "e pluribus unum." in indonesia, it is "unity in diversity." they have this enormous number of ethnic groups, languages, and they have been able to make a go of the country. >> this is what came to me as i was preparing for the conversation. years ago, and i mean years ago, my mother used to say -- god bless her -- if a business could sell one pair of nylon stockings to every woman in china, they would have a very successful business. was she right way back when? >> she is right in terms of the math but perhaps a little bit optimistic in terms of the possibilities. >> it seems that everything we read about with china and united states is focused on economics and trade and investment. >> if you take a chinese peasant and move that peasant into an urban job, the productivity of the worker goes up 20 times. >> why is
talking about a few hundred meters of the very fringes of the sea. japan is not a country like indonesia. it is a very rich country. and it has a very active construction industry which for decades has been concreting over the coastlines. to a rather depressing extent. what that means is that the coast is by and large pretty well protected. there aren't a lot of areas of open coast, certainly not in the towns. so plenty of these places do have seawalls in place. they have the pods which absorb the tides. and a big earthquake in japan doesn't come as a surprise to anyone. so there's certainly no excuse for not being prepared. >> absolutely. richard lloyd parry, editor for the times. thank you for talking with us and explaining your experience there as this 8.9 earthquake struck where you are. and you have made the decision to stay safely in that building. just for a moment, let's listen in to nhk coverage. nhk tv there in japan. and listen to what they're able to report at this point. >> reporter: heads of the various political parties, our secretary general and our -- vice deputy preside

in '98, indonesia everybody said this place won't hold together. we're in a modern world. other countries don't always fall apart so easily. there are forces of sbe sbrags to keep it together. let's not think of every worst case scenario when we're dealing with one of the two, three most repressive regimes in the world. whatever happens will be better than gadhafi. >> we talks about this during egypt. the whole neighborhood was watching. perhaps the most volatile neighborhood in the world. what is being said by governments friendly and not so friendly in the region about how the united states and the world so far are handling libya? >> i think that's a crucial point, john. that's one of the reasons to be supportive. it's one thing to support the people. it's one thing to put as much pressure as you can on libya. but if the united states starts intervening, in order to do regime change, it is going to unsettle the other countries. it would be nice if we could say it doesn't matter. but it does matter. if saudi arabia doesn't cooperate with us on the pumping of oil around the world. that ma
about what happened in indonesia? what happened in other places? so the muslim majority clearly would matter and that is why people are asking about indonesia. but at this point, there is no sense of boquet this country shows us our future and i think that is quite deliberate on the part of those people who are trying to sort out what kinds of policy and procedures they want to advocate. the question of the youth and mrs. clinton. i actually didn't put much import in that. i think it is clear that mrs. clinton's visit was not particularly well organized and so figuring out beforehand who would be willing and able to meet with her and that is why i think it didn't happen. and so some of that, you know they left themselves open to apparently being disrespected if you well. but i don't know that there is anything deeper to read into that at this juncture in any event. on the issue of the turnout for the constitutional referendum, the mid-40s may not sound like a lot to you but the turnout for the parliamentary elections in the fall was 5%. the mid-40s is pretty high. and in fact it was v
as president formed an organization called le for all, religious liberty for all, got together with indonesia's leading young rock star who also was a strong supporter of this indonesian tradition, and they went around the country putting on rock concerts as soccer stadiums, the rock star would write songs about religious liberty, teach them to kids, the kids would sing, the rock star would entertain and he would talk about the importance of freedom and liberty, including religious liberty. to put it mildly, that is not the saudi tradition. they teach their doctrine. indonesia is the largest muslim country in the world, so it's certainly not everybody. a big chunk. this doctrine effectively teaches death to homosexuals and apostates, all kinds of brutality is fine, beating your wife, killing your daughter as she strolls down a neighborhood street with a neighborhood boy talking. it goes on and on. a worldwide caliphate, theocratic dictatorship. all over the world google to saudi schools are eight, ne-year-old boys who are bein taught to dream someday, perhaps, of being able to be a suicide bo
it was indonesia when i was talking about the mau maus in kenya and father and british and incredible line of narrative and he meant toy say -- no, he didn't. he meant to say what he said. >> he seemed to be questioning the idea the british empire was an empire >> this is a zem for the republicans and not just huckabee because you have polls indicate that you have nearly half of the registered republican voters who buy this kind of stuff. so how do you pander -- >> what percent? >> we willing at major plurality if not a majority. the high 40s. >> the republican party. >> republican party, yes, exactly. >> that's about 20-some percent of the country. >> those are the votes that you need in the republican primary. that's the issue here. this is an issue that george will -- >> george will, let him speak for himself. here's will's comment. here is his take are in this column. sensible americans must be detected vibrations of weirdness and emanating from people associated with the republican party. the most recent vibrator is mike huckabee who referred in a radio interview president obama havin
profound that it simply changed the coastline of indonesia. you're seeing a lot of that also in japan, how far this came inland, because very often you have very, very low elevation land right close to the sea. the difference between japan and indonesia and the reason for the death toll was so much greater in indonesia is that indonesia is a poor country. so people built their villages right on the coast. and lived off of the sea. those villages were simply swept away. >> shepard: we don't know where the death pole is going to go, but they have serious questions about a nuclear reactor there. and many questions about where everyone is. a lot of houses are missing and they can't find the people. >> yeah. >> shepard: that would be a disaster. >> in instances like this, you have early assessment and that changes dramatically. as it did in the 2004 tsunami. we have didn't know the death toll was as large as it was because villages were isolated. they have fabulous it cannology and people in tech owe got warnings 30 seconds in advance of earthquake that a shock was coming because they measured

and indonesia. joining us is mike huckabee, the author of new book. how did that happen? >> honestly it was about 40th media interview of the day. you have done these things, if i read from my own text, i clearly said he grew up in indonesia. it was a verbal gaffe. i immediately apologized but that is not enough for the left wing media. >> bill: we're not giving you jazz. but a smart guy like you, if you make a mistake like that you are going to get hearld by people that don't like you want to see you diminished. to be clear, you understand or believe that president obama resume, born in hawaii, we kept this out of the factor, moved to indonesia as a young boy with his crazy mom. i say that not in a bad way but she was a little eccentric. then comes back to hawaii and never sees his father. i don't think he traveled to kenya as a child. all of that is true, right? >> that is absolutely true. i've been one of those people, i don't have any doubts about his american birth. i've been adamant about that. anyone that says otherwise, they have not listened to what i said. this was a verbal
information coming to us out of the philippines? >> that's right. the philippines, guam, taiwan, indonesia and the u.s. state of hawaii are all in the path of this potential tsunami. joining us now on the telephone is mike cohen. he is a curran gist who is in manila, in the philippines. what is the situation there? >> right now, greg, what we are seeing is generally a situation of evacuation that supped way -- that is underway. an hour ago they gave the order to evacuate coastal and low-lying areas in the philippines. this is not one specific island. this is 19 provinces affecting about 20 mill people, greg. >> is it orderly? is it panicky? >> you have to admit there is panic. they are seeing the scenes on television the scenes from japan. but people are peaceful. the government gave early warning. they are well organized because we do have a lot of problems with typhoons here, and they have been able to get the warning out with enough time. the philippine president went on raid dwroa. -- on radio. they issued a specific instruction. they say to go two kill localers -- kilometers in land.

in indonesia killing hundreds of thousands. in this case, they are faring much better, which is good to hear. there's still concern of major after shocks. in japan, they had quakes that were in the six magnitude range, seven magnitude range. they are very, very large. the resulting waves just moving cars around as though they were floating twigs. it's caused fires and explosions at energy storage areas. japan is hitting around 6:30 p.m. they are having to deal with this. what i understand, it's night fall at the moment. this is what they are seeing at night. huge flames in areas. in other spaces they are concerned about these dark waves, shall we say, in the darkness, waves of water coming into the coastal areas of japan. the epicenter was only 230 miles away from tokyo. 13 million people live in that metro poll tan area. a huge population. it was a concern. many of them were, at the time, when it hit at 2:00 p.m. local, were moving around in office buildings. it was a slow progression, got larger and larger. many of them realized after a certain point this was going to be larger than what t
reminiscent of the 2004 indonesia tsunami i saw up close and personal. it covered wide swaths of isolated areas. now you have this covering wide swathes of densely populated areas. i think as the hours continue to progress we're going to see the damage continue to rise and the death toll unfortunately will continue to rise also. >> neil: all right, major brown, good seeing you again under these circumstances. we're talking about the nuclear plant. the kyodo news service that radiation levels outside the plant are some eight times the normal levels this is outside the plant. eight times the normal radiation levels. they stress that the deliberate release of radiation is relatively contained and everything will be all right. that gives some angst out there. the huge earthquake hitting japan, this may not be the big one. protests erupting in saudi arabia today what that could mean.

on to harvard, she married another for third world guy, indonesia and took yondah obama into indonesia and becomes more pro-western, more pro-american and his mother became very antagonistic and would attack him and say to young barack don't be like this guy, people like your real man. he was uncompromising, he had ideals. so here's my point. i do think that his mother had an enormous influence on him. she was his father's first convert and so she was the one who elevated in his mind this mythical larger-than-life image of the father and then as obama grew older it was a shock for him to realize my father isn't quite this romantic sort of donaghey of kenya but was a very flawed man and that is when obama undertake this journey to africa and finds out for himself the great thing you write about obama and the family grave and weeping. so let's talk more about barack obama, senior's world. he came to america in 1959. he went to hawaii. you referred to in 1965 essay he wrote in which problems facing out socialism and he called himself an african socialist. do you think -- you describe that
the young obama to indonesia and becomes more pro-western and pro-american and began very antagonistic and would attack him and say don't be like this guy come he was a real man, uncompromising, and i do think that obama had an enormous influence. she was his father's first convert, and so she was the one who elevated in his mind this mythical larger-than-life image of the father and then as obama grew older it was a shock for him to realize my father isn't quite this romantic sort of gone beyond of kenya but was a very flawed man and that is when he undertakes the journey to africa to find out for himself the great scene you write about obama at the family grave and weeping. so let's talk a little bit more about barack obama senior's world. he came to america in 1959, he went to hawaii. you refer to a 1965 essay that he wrote and which problems facing us are socialism and he called himself an african specialist. to describe that essay in the context of debates within kenya and it was. when we think of anticolonialism we think there are different species of anticolonialism. it was more
indonesia. be uh if you insert indonesia in the rest of the talking points, none of it makes sense. it had to be kenya, and that was his first step. then he comes out with this semi apology, but the apology as you highlight, just sort of feeds into more obama bashing, he's not like us, he's foreign, he has a foreign influence, this stuff just won't end and the right wing media will not let this stuff die. they're really fighting the last war. obama won in an e electoral landslide. he won north carolina, he won indiana. this idea that he was foreign and not like us, they won't let it go, but the american people just aren't buying it. >> let's go to michael on this. professor, thank you for joining us. everybody knows i was in the peace corps, i was in africa and most americans who grew up in my age group are familiar with the term mau mau. it was the uprising against the british colonialists in kenya, of course. it ended british rule there and probably in the end was probably a good thing. it got them out of there. i'm not a colonialist. i don't like colonization of other people. the great
when you talk about the mau, mau, with conservative codes and it is not indonesia and not suggesting the couple of years he spent in indonesia with his mom? >> right. it is one heck of a misstatement and it is not like he used it one time and he accidentally said kenya instead of indonesia, and he went on and on and on and the bizarre part is that he h sl slaps down the birther conspiracies by saying that if the birth certificate was fake, the hillary campaign would have found it and then he talks about president obama growing up in kenya. it was bizarre and if it was a mistake, it was a sloppy range one. >> there is something going on there that it has to be an attempt to signal somebody about something, but it doesn't sound like the kind of thing that you say, and certainly not a slip of the tongue. >> right. >> and more developments on the republican front. politico is now reporting and new york times announced or reported that fox has announced that it is actually suspending newt gingrich and rick santorum's contracts? >> that is right. this is probably triggered by newt's announ
to indonesia. ironically low though in indonesia becomes more pro-western, and his mother became very antagonistic and she would attack him and say to young barack don't be like this guy, be like your real deputy was a real bed. he was uncompromising. he had ideas. so here's my point. i do think his mother had enormous influence on him. she was his father's first convert. so she was the one who elevated him, young obama, his larger-than-life image of the father and then as obama grew older it was a shock for him to realize g., my father is not quite this romantic sort of kind the of kenya. he was asked a very fraud that. that's when obama takes a journey to find for himself the great seeing you write about about obama at the family grave weeping. so let's talk about more about barack obama seniors world. he came to america, 1959. he went to hawaii. you refer to in 1965 essay that he wrote in which problems facing our socialism. and call himself an african socialist. do you think -- you describe that essay in the context of debates within kenya. and we think of adequately as a we forge
